I have a full LAMP server set up with my site on it open to the public.I'd like to set up TorrentFlux as a *Intranet* site for home.

How can I do this do people can not accidentally/or purposely get access to it from the internet?

I'd like to have it set up so on our lan we would just have to type something like http://torrent and have it take us to the Torrentflux page.

I'm a bit lost on how to do this. I'm almost positive its done in DNS/Bind and Apache, but I don't know what to google to find information on doing this. I also know our home machines will have to use this server as their DNS server to have this work. I know on our server at work we had set up something like this, but it was a long time ago now, and it was a MS 2003 server lol and I don't remember how it was done.

Anyone able to help or point me to a how to on this?

Edit the /etc/hosts files on all LAN PC's that need access to that server by associating the torrent name with the local IP number of the server (something like torrent). That way there is no need to tweak the DNS settings and no one from the outside could access it by typing http://torrent (unless they know your public IP and there is some routing/forwarding going on from your router to the torrent server and they would modify their own /etc/hosts file accordingly).
